We are trying to find an affordable Manningtree conveyancing quote. What do we need to consider?


Various firms purport to offer theoretically cheap conveyancing. Unfortunately extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms which unwary homeowners fail to check. Any additional fees listed in terms and conditions should be reasonable. The disbursements to be paid should also be clearly stated on your quote. Our quotes clearly state all legal fees for a standard conveyancing transaction.


Can you state how to hold off paying stamp duty to the Revenue?


We do not recommend conveyancing clients arrange any form of stamp duty mitigation, as such schemes are often uneconomical and the HMRC can review a scheme up to 6 years after a sale is completed .


Which local authority looks after Manningtree?


Manningtree is located in Tendring District Council, Town Hall, Station Road, Clacton on Sea, Essex, CO15 1SE, phone: 01255 686 868


What will conveyancing searches cost?


The cost of searches on a Manningtree purchase greatly varies, depending on the searches chosen. Conveyancing searches are paid to a third party.


What issues assist with aiming for a fast conveyancing process?


Importantly, a fast conveyancing transaction is key to instruct a proactive property lawyer. Ask these questions when identifying your conveyancer:

  • Was there a delay delivering a quote?
  • Are phone, fax and email their preferred methods of contact
  • Will they order searches immediately?


Will the Manningtree property solicitor get any property on the Essex Victorian detached building I am intending to purchase?


The normal conveyancing procedure is to get the following Local Authority Search, Drainage and Water Search (CON29DW) and Environment Search and occasionally area-specific searches such as Commons Registration Search.


As a consequence of the fact that last year was second wettest year since 1920 I am thinking that flood searches might not be sufficient?


Your property solicitor in Manningtree will consider get environmental searches if the initial conveyancing searches identifies a significant risk Manningtree flooding risk.

It may be sensible to converse with a next door neighbour for that additional insight or local Essex flood damage business e.g. Rose Builders Ltd, Riverside House/Riverside Av East, Lawford, Manningtree, CO11 1US Tel: 01206 392613.


Should we select a law firm put forward by our estate agent?


Agent referrals are a common path whereby buyers get a solicitor, however, these referrals should be compared against alternatives, as the agent may prefer to suggest whichever firm pays the most per referral, not the best solicitor for your needs.
